TUCKER CARLSON: (HOST): There's an election coming up. Does this play a role?

NIGEL FARAGE: Well, so far in the election, we've been talking basically about Brexit and competing Brexit, and actually terror, open-door immigration, they've played relatively low roles in the election campaign so far. Now, there are 16 days to go. If it were to turn out that this attack, let's say for argument's sake, had been taken place by somebody who's been fighting with ISIS in Syria and had returned home, then it clearly has the potential to change the way people think and to change the whole debate. We've just not been talking about security in this election at all so far. From tomorrow morning, we will be.
